Pregnant Nicky Hilton Turns Designer Gown Into the Ultimate Maternity Style

A family affair! Pregnant Nicky Hilton and her sister, Paris Hilton, wowed in intricate ball gowns and got affectionate on the red carpet while attending the Fashion Institute of Technology's annual gala honoring designer Dennis Basso.

Both heiresses wore Basso's designs to the NYC event on Monday, May 9, but Nicky, 32, who is expecting her first child with husband James Rothschild, opted for the bump-friendly strapless, empire waist dress. Her cream floor-length gown was ethereal, featuring soft floral appliqués that cascaded artfully down the garment.

Paris, 35, chose a form-fitting art deco–inspired ensemble by Dennis Basso, which she paired with a Jacob & Co. bangle and statement earrings.

On the carpet, the DJ told Us Weekly on Facebook Live exactly how she feels about being an aunt. "I'm so excited for the baby!" she said.

Watch today's Red Carpet Daily, presented by AT&T, to get more details from the gala.

Then, stay tuned for an interview with Julianne Houghwho dishes on her new MPG Sport athleisure line. "The reason wearing something really cute while you work out is so important is because you want to pump yourself up," she told Us.
